Evolution of the SBP c-clamp. The general structure of an SBP is a c-­clamp. The c-clamp has undergone significant structural evolution. The conformational range that this structure can occupy includes a compact cleft resembling a stone (PDB entry 1xvx; Shouldice et al., 2005BB48), an elongated cleft resembling a dumbbell (PDB entry 4wed; New York Structural Genomics Research Consortium, unpublished work) and clefts with more curvature that resemble horseshoes (PDB entries 2xy4 and 5cr9; Ilari et al., 2011BB22; Midwest Center for Structural Genomics, unpublished work). Models for each morphology are included below the respective PDB codes. If a structure is metal-bound, the metal sphere is shown and is colored by CPK chemical convention.
